RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Perez got a nice bump in playing time when starting catcher Yan Gomes suffered a knee injury in mid-April, finishing the season with a .228/.348/.402 line and hitting seven homers in 70 games for the Indians. He's never hit for much power in the minors (.710 OPS with 22 homers in 514 games) but did manage to hit eight in 209 plate appearances at Triple-A Columbus in 2014 so perhaps the power spike is legit. He's good enough defensively to warrant the occasional start and the added power, if it sticks, gives him a leg up on most reserves in deeper formats. Gomes had a disappointing season at the plate but Perez is of no threat to unseat him for the starting role so he'll be back as Gomes' backup again in 2016.

2015

Although Perez did little with his limited opportunies in his reserve role behind Yan Gomes after his promotion in July, slashing .271/.311/.365 with one homer in 29 games, he flashed some promise in 53 games with Triple-A Columbus to begin the year. A 33rd-round pick in 2008, he hit .305/.405/.517 with eight homers while at Columbus, doubling his home run total from his previous two years combined, while adding 43 RBI and 29 walks. He also played above-average defense behind the plate, but strikeouts have been a major issue at each level (27.4% with the big club last season) and his .378 BABIP seems like an anomoly given his relatively low numbers in past years. Regardless, Carlos Santana's catching days are seemingly over, and Perez appears primed to spend 2015 as the full-time backup, with Tony Walters the only other catcher currently on the 40-man roster.
